We address the issue of order identification for {\HMM} with Poisson and Gaussian emissions. We prove information-theoretic {\BIC}-like mixture inequalities in the spirit of \cite{Fi91,LN94,GB03}. These inequalities lead to consistent penalized estimators that need no prior bound on the order nor on the parameters of the mixture components.
